What is the Cloud of Things?

The Cloud of Things is our high-performance, cloud-based IoT application platform for the Internet of Things. You can use it to connect your devices and machines while monitoring and controlling them remotely. Out-of-the-box, no programming or installation (SaaS): Simply connect your devices, configure individual dashboards and get your first IoT project up and running!

The Cloud of Things collects the sensor data of your connected machines in real-time and analyzes it. And you’ll always have an overview of several parameters, such as pressure, RPM, temperature or position in your personal web portal. You’ll also have comprehensive analysis tools at your disposal to gain insights and trigger automated actions. It all makes it extremely easy to develop new business models, increase the efficiency of your systems and processes, reduce downtime and cut costs through predictive maintenance.

This is how you benefit from the Cloud of Things
  • Real-time monitoring
    Keep track of sensor data from machines and devices in real-time and react to alarms and events.
  • Remote maintenance
    Remotely access your managed devices via the Cloud of Things web portal.
  • Multi-tenant capability
    Manage an unlimited number of separate subtenants.
  • Individual branding
    Easily customize the appearance of the Cloud of Things and the domain to match your brand identity.
  • Rules & alarms
    Define your own rules and alarms and rapidly react to deviations from defined thresholds.  
  • Comprehensive data analytics
    Detect anomalies early and make informed business decisions based on predictive models developed on your own.

The right version for every scenario

Maybe you want to monitor your devices from the cloud. Perhaps you’d like to manage machines at multiple locations and for different branches or brands. But what if you need to process sensitive or latency-critical data on your own servers? The Cloud of Things is available in three scalable versions that adapt to your individual requirements.
